2c. RESOLUTION for 2021 Capital and Expense Budget Priorities
“Resolved...at the recommendation of the Executive Board of Bronx Community Board #10 that the District Manager submit the annual District Needs Statement for Fiscal Year 2021 to the Mayor of the City of New York and Department of City Planning as part of our annual Charter requirement and that this be forwarded to the Full Board for its approval.”
Having been a Budget Committee Chair of a community board I was charged with creating that years District Needs Statement. It took weeks to prepare said statement, working with the Chair, Vice-Chair, and District Manager of the community board.
I visited the Community Board 10 office on Tuesday October 15th
I asked to see the CB 10 District Needs Statement for Fiscal Year 2021.
I was told the District Manager did not make it up yet. Thus I could not view it.
Here are three questions to CB 10 Chair Mr. Joe Russo, and to Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz's Community Board office.
1 - How can you ask for public participation on something that was unavailable to view?
2 - How are your members of the Executive Committee going to know what your District Manager submits, unless it is going to be the same from the previous year with only the date changed?
3 - Is that why the FY 2020 CB 10 District Needs statement was sent out?
Will I be cut off again Mr. Russo if I question you on the CB 10 FY 2021 District Needs Statement?
